IN SEARCH FOR NEW BURIAL GROUNDS -- Despite the noticeable overcrowding of the Baguio Public Cemetery, which is in use since the early 1950s, the city government has yet to identify an alternative or expansion site for the city’s main burial grounds, which is expected to be full of people who pay respects to their loved ones on All Saints’ Day. Several houses have been constructed right at the boundary of the cemetery, although no case of encroachment was reported to the concerned City Hall offices.
